Circumstances. circumstances ...

I've just read the latest edition of "COSLA Connections" - COSLA's monthly bulletin.

It contains a couple of sentences that absolutely deserve wider attention - you can find them on page 8 in the bottom, left-hand corner here ... I should warn you that you'll need to squint sideways to see it properly, but you'll undoubtedly fall over laughing anyhow ...

... in a two-page spread on the infamous concordat, whilst discussing the overall financial settlement for Scottish Local Government, it boldly states:

"Under no circumstances can the financial position be described as good. However, it has generally been accepted that it is the best deal possible under the circumstances."

Just about sums up the whole sorry-saga really ...

What no posts since Thursday. You are getting as lazy as those ones over at EdSucks. Hopefully you will be back soon.

Is it true that EdSucks did the makover because you did? Cheeky buggers.

Now rectified - and up to date :-)

Had logged the posts but just not published them - Friday's events knocked me off my usual blogging-stride!
